Scarcity Consciousness vs. Prosperity Consciousness

Your beliefs may play a bigger role in your wealth than you think.

Over the years I have come to realize that there are many different levels of awareness to thinking positively.

You may be familiar with the Law of Attraction, which describes how we create the things, events and people that come into our lives. Our thoughts, feelings, words and actions produce energies, which in turn attract like energies. Negative energies attract negative and positive energies attract positive. Perhaps you've also heard of the concept of visualization, which is the act or process of interpreting in visual terms or putting into visible form our wants and desires in order to manifest them.

I'd like to discuss two other important but less familiar universal laws and explain some of their implications for our lives, mainly focusing on how they relate to money.

The first is The Law of Divine Oneness, which states that everything is connected to everything else. What we think, say, do and believe will have a corresponding effect on others and the universe around us. The second is The Law of Vibration. Everything in the universe moves, vibrates and travels in circular patterns. The same principles of vibration in the physical world apply to our thoughts, feelings, desires and wills in the etheric world. Each sound, thing, and even thought has its own unique vibrational frequency.

According to these two laws, everything is connected and in a constant state of motion. This means that everything around us is energy, including money. These laws can shift your perspective in a way that can help you think bigger and achieve more.

Let's talk about some of the implications of this different perspective. The idea that everything is connected implies that we are connected to every form of currency that could ever exist on the planet. Thus, in our own divine right, we are never without money, even if we can't see it and we don't currently possess it. We also are not limited by our bank accounts or our credit lines. We have unlimited credit. We can never be broke or in debt because we already are connected to all that is. This also implies that your weekly paycheck is not all you have.

What we visualize is important. Equally important is knowing how our beliefs can oppress us. Shifting our beliefs gives us the ability to manifest money because all of our needs already are met. We can either maintain a scarcity consciousness, in which we live in fear, believing in lack and limitation, or we can adopt a prosperity consciousness, in which we see all of our needs already met and so are never without what we need.

Consider some interesting facts about the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between the real and the imagined. You can reprogram the subconscious mind through repetition, even if you don't initially believe the repeated thought. Reminding yourself of these laws and their implications will eventually cause your subconscious mind to react and create the reality you were always meant to live. Being aware of our thoughts and how we tend to oppress ourselves is the first step in gaining back our financial freedom.

It all starts with what you believe. Do you choose scarcity or prosperity?
